Sub-Atomic Soup Of Gluons And Quarks. Lqcd Approximation.


Recommended Posts

Lattice QCD use discrete units of space and time to create a 3D grid, at which the QCD equations are solved

numerically, not analitically. But it requires increasing computing power to model smaller time and space units.

An article from 2010 told about a consortium of 7 laboratories to develop the software and hardware to analyze

a 256x1083 lattice (PetaQCD Project).

 

This animated GIF is from a project from the CSSM lab, at the University of Adelaide (Australia).

The gluonic soup is in light blue, and quarks appear and dissapear, as well as the gluon blobs.

I don't know the scale of time used for this representation.
